    Limerick thread

    Share your best, most creative or thoughtful limericks here! The only prior limerick thread was a limerick competition from 2014 (link), but they had to be autism related. As long as they follow all community guidelines (no swearing or lurid/political topics) there are no such restrictions here...

    Explaining Special Interests out of Love

    I'm actually pretty annoyed because most times, when I open up about something I like (My Little Pony for example, which has adult jokes and references that adults will get) the others in my family usually run away because they have to go to work (which I understand now is not personal), say...

    What to do when an obsession/interest costs too much money? (I have too many interests, help)!

    I can get pretty intensely interested in things that require too much money in order to be as exhaustive as I want them to be. I have a handful of Obsessions/interests, many involve collecting, and I just cant continue to prioritize them all anymore and I don't know what to do about it. I know...

    The amazing bear soldier.

    I just found this video on YouTube about a young brown bear cub named Wojtek (Happy Warrior), who was rescued and adopted by the polish army and fought alongside them during World War two. Check it out if you are interested. By the way there's nothing gory, it's more of a heartwarming and...

    My Life Oblivious of Autism intro

    I am biologically a female, but I identify as gender neutral. Because of that, it took a little longer to figure myself out, and was always missed. I was officially diagnosed with high functioning autism, alongside depression and anxiety, by the age of 15, so I missed a lot of my mental illness...

    Were you imaginative as a child?

    Fiction played a significantly large role in my childhood. In a way it helped me cope with my surroundings. Having an imaginary world that I could escape to when times got rough altered my mood at times. I spent years creating my own paracosm, adding small details to it each day (even down to...

    Nostalgic over Beanie Babies

    I have realized that lately I've become nostalgic about Beanie Babies...the ones I grew up with as a kid in the 90s and 2000s. As I've said probably more than once at this point, the newer "Beanie Boos" are kinda cute - I have a few of the more realistic and fuzzy ones, in fact. :) But I miss...

    If you could travel back in time...

    I was wondering some things people would do and see if they could travel back in time. For me, I would see a lot of musicians that have passed, or played at unique venues, like Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii. I would also travel back to prehistoric times, because I have always been interested in...

    Job Interview part 2: Multipotentialites

    In the wake of my job interview last week, I've made some discoveries and had some revelations. At the time of my last blog post I was feeling self-conscious. Skipping to the end: I got over that, due to some accidental vigorous soul-searching. I spent some time thinking about how, to other...
